Seattle-based PopCap Games is back with another game featuring anthropomorphic animals, and this time it’s all about solving mysteries.

Hidden Agenda is PopCap’s first ever social hidden object game on Facebook and is currently out for beta. You can test out the game, but the big launch with the full version won’t be out until later this month.

“Hidden Agenda is a fresh take on the HOG genre, but deeply rooted in PopCap’s proven heritage, which includes the best-selling series such as Mystery P.I. and Amazing Adventures, among others,” said Kurt Busch, executive producer of Hidden Agenda, in a press release. “With this new game, we’re extending the genre with a compelling story and rich characters, as well as great game challenges and social features that elevate the entire category.”

Each character is hiding something in Hidden Agenda and users need to navigate through the town to find out who and what will open new doors and opportunities for solving a local murder mystery. Players can work with and against friends on Facebook.

The full version will feature 12 cases, 48 hidden object scenes, 25 characters, hundreds of hidden object jobs and thousands of hidden items to find.
